A shocking gun discovery is going to rock Mick and Linda Carter’s marriage in Eastenders next week.
The struggling couple – played by actors Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright – will clash after Linda discovers a gun given to Mick by criminal Aidan Maguire.
With Mick agreeing to join the gang carrying out Aidan’s heist for a big payday, he’s struggling to hide his decision to go to the dark side from Linda.
Unfortunately for him Aidan doesn’t really care about his marriage, and so when he piles on the pressure for Mick to become more involved forcing him to choose between his vow renewal plans and the heist planning.
And when Mick chooses to plan with Linda instead of Aidan, Aidan confronts him.
Mick apologises and insists he’s still on board, but he later has second thoughts when Aidan gives him a gun for his part of the heist.
Hidden in Christmas wrapping, Mick stashes the gun in the Vic but an excited Linda can’t wait to have a peek at her gifts but gets more than she bargained for.
Horrified by what she’s found she confronts Mick.
After seeing the sheer horror on his wife’s face, Mick resolves to get himself out of the gang, but is it too late?
The Carters desperately need the money and Aidan doesn’t seem like a man to be trifled with.
